Dec. 23, 2004: VIÑA PEÑALOLÉN Cabernet Sauvignon Maipo Valley 2002 (89 points, $17)

Alluring notes of mint, sage and roasted vanilla and coffee beans run through the stylish black cherry and currant fruit here, with the fruit gaining in intensity through the loamy yet supple finish. Drink now through 2006. 2,000 cases made. From Chile. —James Molesworth

Dec. 22, 2004: BODEGAS SALENTEIN Malbec Mendoza 2002 (89 points, $18)

Show's Malbec's unique combination of dark plum and boysenberry fruit offset by bright acidity and fresh notes of vanilla, mineral and violets. Ripe, clean finish. Drink now through 2005. 4,500 cases imported. From Argentina. —James Molesworth

Dec. 21, 2004: MUELLER Chardonnay Russian River Valley LB 2002 (91 points, $24)

A notably rich, creamy, deftly balanced style, with layers of fig, melon, vanilla and citrus, turning elegant and complex on the finish. Drink now through 2008. 840 cases made. From California. —James Laube

Dec. 20, 2004: GEMTREE Shiraz McLaren Vale Uncut 2003 (89 points, $25)
